Iraqi Bundles of Love

So, do you have some extra fabric and notions hanging around your house? If so...read on.

I've been reading Kristen's blog for awhile now and she's an amazing artist, but besides that she's got this cool husband who is serving in Iraq and doing this project to leave behind supplies for the people he has served. Iraqi Bundles of Love. I'm packing up a box to send tonight.

Head here to read more about it and find out how you can help. A simple gesture with enormous impact.

Edited to add: The IBOL guy has made a button (well, maybe Kristen made it) to add to your blog. Thanks to all who have headed over and are sending a box. I know I shouldn't be surprised by the goodness and generosity of people. But, somehow I always am.

Hi- I tried to "Head here", but the link didn't work. Is it you, or is it me?? :-)

If those are the fabrics you are sending someone will be very lucky and I am sure grateful. They are wonderful. I will check out the link - that's for the information!

Thanks for the info! I hopped over to Kriste's and the IBOL blogs to get Mr. IBOL's APO address. Whipping up a box this weekend to send on Monday :)

I will send 20 yards if you send me those blue barbells! I would kill for blu barbells!

IBOL Guy said...

OMG, send her the blue barbells! Quick!

(I have no idea what a blue barbell even is, but 20 yards? My gosh!)

Victoria said...

I am inspired again by you. I checked out the link and went to my stash to sort out some good stuff for a bundle. It is SOOOO hard to pick for someone else. It is hard because I don't know who it is and because there are all sorts of cultural differences. I ended up picking a lot and sorting a lot and will have to try again this weekend. Maybe I will hope for trans-cultural similarities - I like blues and greens so someone else will too and so on.
